In this paper, two different dynamic cell coordination stratagies for frequency selective and flat fading are proposed for efficient subcarrier allocation in the joint consideration of adaptive modulation and variable frequency reuse in the channel-aware OFDMA downlink multicellular environment. Compared to a conventional OFDMA system without cell coordination, where system throughput may become degraded due to the persistent interference from other cells, the proposed system dynamically allows RNC to apply different reuse factors on each subchannel and scheduling in consideration of channel and interference conditions of individual users so as to increase the system throughput and guarantee QoS of each user. In a selective fading channel, the proposed schemes showed 2.6 times as large throughput as that of a single reuse factor of one for all subcarriers. In a frequency flat fading, the dynamic scheme with the proposed scheduling achieves on average three times larger throughput than the conventional dynamic scheme [8].
